Introduction The ability to relate the expression of specific genes to a cellular phenotype is an extremely useful tool in both research and diagnostic settings. Current RNA detection techniques mainly look at gene expression using RNA obtained from whole cell populations; however, it is possible to detect RNA directly in single cells where the structural context is preserved. Mature mRNA for specific proteins can be visualized in frozen sections so that expression patterns across different tissues can be investigated (1, 2).
